What I’ve Been Up To – The Laura Ashley Festive Craft Event


I love meeting new people, especially local bloggers. Last Sunday I had the chance to do just that, along with plenty of crafting with Laura Ashley and Ministry Of Craft at Rosylee Tearooms in one of my favourite parts of Manchester.


First we got to sew our own bunting gift bag with some lovely Laura Ashley fabric.


Then after getting over the fact that I haven’t used a sewing machine in over 15 years (Even then it wasn’t that successful!) I managed to create my version of the bunting gift bag..

Craft Parties from Adore By Chloe [Tattooed Bride Blog]

Good afternoon! I hope you are well on such a terribly wet weekend. I’m quite enjoying being snuggled in watching series’ all day – We spent Thursday getting drenched in the downpour and scared at Alton Towers so it’s nice to have a rest! (P.S. The new Nemesis Sub Terra is not a ride, just a horrible walk-through scare! NOT for kids and the easily scared!)

Do you fancy something different from your usual hen party? Chloe from Adore By Chloe has created craft parties! 

“How about hosting a craft party? It’s the perfect daytime activity for hens that want a relaxed, fun and creative afternoon. Run by Chloe from Adore, the UK’s leading crafty wedding blog, you’ll have a craft expert to teach you new skills, help you make something personal and give you lots of creative ideas and tips!”
